I am forwarding this because I don't think it was posted to the list and
that was obviously the intention. However, I have not received any
listmail for 12 hours, which is odd. Would someone please post something
and Cc: it to me so I can see if there is a problem? Thanks...

What is the mandate of this list. Sure the FAQ makes
reference to what we're about but that's not carved in
stone I don't think.
I don't think we can talk about Miki Berenyi's hair or Vaughan
Oliver's design or Ivo and his pursuits, 24-7. Face it people this
is a small independent music label and the news is not always
going to be happening by the minute. I think that discussion of
seemingly trivial things shows how dedicated listies are to
anything of even remote relevance or interest. I would like to know why
these other lists are saying things like that as we don't discuss
them and their activities. Sure I like the X-Files, I like Friends,
I like Star Trek too but I don't knock when those people get
trivial about things. Star trek people can get viscious when it comes
to trivia I know I've been to a convention, man. Its a music list for music
of, by, for or in a related vein to 4AD. That includes Projekt, Creation,
Dewdrops, Bedazzled, One Little Indian, Gyroscope, etc etc.
4AD people are not always going to agree nor have the
same lifestyles or concerns, but the combinations of people and the
common factor of liking 4AD as a musical genre, makes the
list interesting. I think that I have got exposure to a few
bands through this list that commercial crap radio CFNY
102.1 in Toronto would never have even touched. Its ironic that they
are sponsoring Stereolab as they probably never played
even one of their songs, Cornershop? never heard them
on that station. Hell even Tortoise is not "cool" enough in
Alan Cross' eyes (the guy who thinks Tori Amos is the
end all and be all). When advertisers own the airwaves
and radio stations must kiss corporate butt, then bands
like Tortoise and Stereolab rely on word of mouth. As
in a trivial mention of them on a related music list.
I think our mandate should be to keep good music in
the ears and minds of open-minded people tired of
the Billboard-fed diet of marketing crap. It took 4AD
a long time to join Warners and Reprise, but it was one
their terms and remains so. Independent music will
always prevail in the shadow of some corporate hacks,
it has to, otherwise music is a joke and not music (art
per se) at all, but a by-product of some bottom-line.
My $.02 regarding whether this list is important.

I thought this would be appropriate here. The kind of stuff more people
should be listening to in return for the kind of stuff most of us are
getting sick of. What better bargain could you hope for? :)

Are you boycotting Fax because you don't particularly care for the material
released, or just to make a point?

In an interview on KCRW awhile back, Mark admitted that he doesn't listen to
a lot of the new music that comes out. He continued to say that he was into
older stuff like the Cars and *ahem* John Denver. He gushed to say that
Denver's material was, "some really great stuff."
The song covers that RHP and Mark decide to do don't surprise me too much. I
speculate that in addition to the covers on the upcoming album on Island, we
can also look forward with great confidence in a Christmas '96 release of
'RHP vs. the 70's preservation society'.

Should anyone have an extra copy of the following or is willing to part
with their's, please e-mail me:
BAD 806 CD ULTRA VIVID SCENE: She Screamed CD single, 1988
BAD 910 CD PALE SAINTS: Barging Into... CD single, 1989
Somehow, I managed to miss out on these when they were originally
released. I saw the Pale Saints CD but didn't buy it at the time because
I thought it would be available for longer than it was.
e-mail me either at the above CompuServe address (my friend Seann's
address) or email@example.com with asking prices...

Does anyone know details about Dead Can Dance playing in
Chicago 24/25th of July? That is, where are they playing
and when do tickets go on sale, and through who do we buy
Thanks very much....
ps What is up with Shaving the Pavement in St Louis?? I
thought they were playing there last night (the 10th) and
now I looked at the official 4ad web site, and they say
they are supposed to be there *tonight* (the 11th). I will
be sooooo mad! I could not go last night, but I could have
gone tonight if I had known.......sigh.

I have now received a whopping 40 new scans, which brings the total up
to 390. So I thought it might be time to go through the discography
and make a list of all the scans that are missing. If you own any of
these releases and have access to a scanner, I would be most grateful
if you could take some time and scan those items.

That wasn't as many as I'd thought, really. After adding these, the
discography will be complete, sleeve-wise.
Crank those scanners up! :-)

hi. i got an advanced copy of stars on esp (yes, i will post a review in
the coming days) and was wondering something. . .someone mentioned that ian
masters sang a track on this. i don't hear his voice anywhere on the thing.
am i missing it? is it on the same track as mark k's vox (btw, that song
reminds me of the beach boys -- sort of)?
thanks for your help, and i will post a song-by-song review. i'm just a bit
apprehensive, having only heard hiiyh.
